I had a rear suspension issue mine still does a "booty shake" but my rear suspension is off from a deer hitting me. I need the rear driver dog bone mount from ford to correct some ps the issue. The suspension is very picky! Especially the rear on the SVT, upgrades are definitely looking like the best best at least for me!!!!

With the shaking on acceleration I would possibly believe an axle could be bad.

I've had the following give me some shake/vibration :

Balance
Tire
Bent Rim
Blown CV joint
Worn Tie Rods

Anything with the tires is easy to check, just do a rotation and inspect both tire and rim closely. I've found missing weights before, frustrating but easily fixed.

2 or my stock rims have bends in them. They're not bad, but they produce a slight vibration at speed. I know about it and always keep it in mind. What I found extremely interesting was that changing out the front tie rods from stock to Moog parts and making sure they're greased took away some vibration and slop out of my front end.

I killed my passenger side CV before I was out of warranty, but I was on a trip from Vegas to 29 Palms when it happened. The vibration was more fairly significant, luckily it held together until I got a dealer to look at it and eventually warranty it. I had to do my drivers side axle last year, but it was still in pretty good shape when I saw the boot had torn. You typically can hear them, but they're easy to check.

Has anyone mentioned wheel hubs? I haven't had to replace any of mine, but some folks have gone through them like candy. My car is also extremely sensitive to how much torque is applied to the lugs, the last time I had tires put on, the guys used pneumatics on her and I had to undo/redo all my lugs as it produced a horrible wubwubwub sound at 50 mph or greater.
